To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what information his Department has received in respect of the recent further gas discovery by Kelt UK Ltd. at Haygate lane in the Vale of Pickering, including the nature of the gas; and if he will make a statement.

Preliminary pressure testing of Kelt's Pickering No. 1 well indicates a significant accumulation of gas. No gas has yet been produced from the well, and it is thus not yet possible to establish the chemical make-up of the gas. The well is currently suspended.
